Subject Re: Configuration of Camel with SNMP
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2009 15:14:14 GMT


Apparently since JavaTM SE 5.0, the JRE provides a means to manage and
monitor the Java Virtual Machine in two flavors: 
- one is based on the Java Management Extension (JMXTM), 
- the other is a small SNMP agent that builds upon the Management and
Monitoring API of the Java SE platform and exposes the same information
through SNMP. 

More info can be found here

As explained by Willem, Camel is JMX centrix. Why do you need snmp
monitoring for ESB project ? Is it to monitor the JVM activity or endpoints,
routes, messages ? Is it because infra team use a snmp tool to monitor the
applications ?
